    Magazzini Generali: Concert/Nightclub venue

    by Elainehead Written Apr 9, 2013

    Founded in 1995, this former warehouse with a 1,000 people capacitly for live music events (nightclub and concerts), is a popular venue in Milan.
    I have been at least three times for rock concerts. The sound is usually good but it'll depend on the sound engineer...
    If you come by car, it's very easy to find a free parking space in the area. All you have to do is arrive at least one hour before the concert.

    Dress Code: No dress code for concerts as long as you have your ticket/invitation.

    b:free cocktail bar: Great aperitivo, happy hour!

    by offear Written Jan 27, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're looking for a cocktail bar with a wide selection of cocktails, you are in the right place! It's a recent cocktailbar, near to corso buenos aires, a famous shopping street, e just a few walk from the downtown (red line tube, porta venezia stop). Amazing selection of shot, molecular drinks (have you ever eat a daiquiri bruschetta??). During aperitivo time you can get with your cocktails a selection of finger foods, really really good!

    Brasserie Bruxelles Pub: Belgian beers

    by fanello1 Written Jul 15, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The typical pub with a chestnut counter, furnished in the style of the 1930s'.
    The right place for those who love the beer or really want to know it.
    Five drought beers unique in Lombardy, drawn off at the Belgian style, i.e. without gas, flavoured and savoury.
    Wide selection of special beers imported from Belgium: particularly those brewed by the monks of the Trappist Abbeys.
    Fill the nose and taste as a wine, they are also served as a wine and even sold to be taken away for a special evening at home or wherever you want.
    All night long until 2am it is possible to taste sandwiches, piadine and the best of Italian cold meats, salami and cheese! All football live on tv.
    Close to C.so Buenos Aires and P.le Loreto. Red Subway line, Station: Lima.

    Atomic Bar: My moment of fame

    by arasnosliw Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A guy recommended this club, which was literally right around the corner from our hotel. Within 30 seconds of walking into this bar, I was approached by a photographer asking to shoot me with some Italian girls for some magazine. Ha, seriously? - (Read: Milan=fashion capital / me=fashion equivalent to a sewage dump.) So I had to toss my hair, pretend to laugh, and contort myself in unnatural positions while being barked at in incomprehensible commands. Fun, eh? The captions should definitely have read "What not to wear..."

    Regardless, this was the perfect place to change my opinion about Milano into something slightly favorable. Rocking DJs blast some indie rock, retro, new wave, groove, electro...

  • Armani Prive: See and be seen..

    by traveler326157 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Armani Prive is a great place to dance, socialize, have a good drink and see some pretty people in nice clothes. I went here on a snowy day last November and had a blast.

    The nightclub is Japanese inspired with beautiful lighting, windows and couches. I reccomens that you get a table here as otherwise there dosen't seem to be much seating.

    The drinks are expensive 20euro each but if you get a table, a bottle including table service, fruit, classes, soda and snacks is only 200euro.

    The night club closed early, around 2ish, I was a bit dissappointed but I heard that's typical in Milan.

    All in all I had a great time, the service was perfect, the location was great and the people there were friendly. If you like luxury, go here...!

    Dress Code: Dress well, I reccomend that you wear your best stuff when going here. You want to impress and you'd expect others to do the same.

    Room 97: Room 97

    by Flamegirl Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Another of the "international hotspots" of Milan thanks to reduced entry prices for Erasmus students, I heard more English spoken here than Italian. Young crowd, mostly under-25s.

    Apart from someone nicking my mobile phone the first time I came here, it's not a bad place. Set in the basement like so many Milan clubs, there are no wide spaces so the atmosphere is quite intimate. However, I didn't find it anything special. House/commercial music mainly except for 70s/80s and RnB on Thursdays, which is meant to be the best evening.

    CAPOVERDE: In a Botanical Garden

    by draguza Updated Mar 6, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For those who love nature, flowers and plants..this is the place!

    This cocktail bar is situated in the middle of a big "Serra" and it seems not to be in the city of Milan, but in a green oasis. Set in a former car-repair shop-turned-greenhouse, Capoverde provides a leafy atmosphere and healthy, casual food. Salads are named for different flowers: for example, the Primrose features fresh spinach, pears, parmesan cheese flakes and pine nuts.. As well as the standard cocktails and wines, the bar has fresh-fruit and vegetable shakes. Diners sit at tables surrounded by tall ficus plants and potted asparagus stalks.

    The milanese temple of DJ sets and electronic music:
    this is a very "peculiar" club, built in 1998 , inside the walls of an old garage in Milan

    With a stage that's 100 sq. metres in size and an auditorium that seats 900, it has what it takes to host touring international performers too, like on Wednesdays for the night of Contemporary Beat. Friday's Jetlag night pulls in big crowds.

    For the style lovers these parties are a must!

    ROIALTO: English Colony style

    by draguza Updated Mar 6, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This cocktail bar and restaurant is ideal for "aperitivo".

    From the outside you would expect to see a Fiat in the windows - it used to be a car dealer. Inside, the style is Spanish colonial, with a huge Cuban bar counter. Crowded with under-40s, packed in for after-work apéritifs (the buffet is generous but not worth a fight) and all-night drinks. Try the pinacolada, served in a fresh sliced coconut. Music not too loud, chatting's ok.

    This former industrial warehouse has bags of attitude, and features vintage chairs, kitschy 70?s chandeliers and Colonial-style palm trees and objects, like a Brazilian beach bar. Head here for aperitifs from 6.30-9pm.The bar is very big and beautiful, the only thing that bothered me were the Indian waiters that were very rude to the clients!

    Dress Code: Everything goes..

    A crowd of creatives and professionals in their 30s flock here for a Milanese-style happy hour that goes on until 10pm. Take your time, and take a look at the monthly exhibitions. The music's sometimes too loud.

    Sunday Brunch (12:30 - 16:30) and Art exhibithins. On-line reservations

    Noy offers its guests a combination of restaurant, lounge cafè, cocktail bar and entertainment. The concept combines Italian tradition with a modern cosmopolitan style. The perfect place for an aperitivo in a elegant and relaxing atmosphere.

    La Bicicletta art bar: La Bicicletta art bar

    by desert_princess Updated Jun 27, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A Lovely place with a free cold buffet where you have the most delicious little things like grilled zucchini, paella, olives, etc etc, just serve yourself , enjoy the rasta bartender, or look at a cartoon on the screen on the wall, while listening to some chillout fashion sounds...this is what I call life....
    What I found absolutely unique was all that food arranged on the bar , that you don't pay for - it's probably included in the price of the drinks , as they were overpriced , but the idea is absolutely greeat. I've seen it in other places in Milan too - this is a good way to make you stay longer and of course to be back .

    Blues canal Irish pub: Live music

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Some who have red more my tips might get surprzed,but we like blues.So we went here,when we heard good music and saw that there was Guinness served. ;) We sat outside and when I went in to toilet,I was surprised to see,that music came alive!We thought there´s a good cd plying.Two women sang on the stage.Place looked nice inside,not too modern and it was quite big.So it might be worth of visiting at winter,too.Sadly they closed soon after we came,we barely finished our pints.Some people left walking with pints or drinks in their hands.Wonder why they close,when place is full of people?
    They had food also,but we had allready eaten,so we didn´t look the menu.

    Dress Code: No dress code any kind
